G20 Focuses on Debt, Taxes and Inequality

The G20 meets in Hamburg, Germany on Friday and Saturday for their annual meetings.

WASHINGTON - Eric LeCompte, Executive Director of the religious development group Jubilee USA, releases the following statement:

"The G20 is focusing on inequality and inclusive economic growth during their meetings in Hamburg. These issues impact all of us, let alone the poorest people in our world.

"Behind closed doors the G20 conversation on inequality will get specific on debt and tax issues.

"‎It's important that the G20 will likely support new global guidelines on responsible lending and borrowing during their meetings. It's critical that the G20 continues efforts to thwart tax evasion and corruption."
